35 weeks


Here is my belly as of one hour ago. Full of stretch marks and worn out skin.
But I still think it is beautiful....
Those stretch marks are like my battle scars of motherhood. I worked hard for those.
Morning sickness, muscle pains, pulls and aches.
Weight gain, heart burn, swollen ankles.


The list goes on and on, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
I'm 35.4 weeks pregnant and I still love every minute of it, but I am really ready to meet Miss E.
More than I ever thought.

I want to see her tiny hands and touch her sweet lips.
To have her skin against mine and soak up every little detail of her perfectly made body is something that I long to cherish. Just as I did with JC.

My goodness, it hits me everyday,I really am pregnant...
and holy cow I'm getting anxious.

this is how I remember feeling towards the end of my pregnancies, but I didn't know the sex of the babies...it is so overwhelming to think about a tiny one being added to the family, yet so beautiful that you can't wait for it to happen.


You are so close, get as much rest as you can before she, Miss E, arrives!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe you're so close!

I love it. The belly, I mean. I love the cupboards too, but, you know, not enough to leave a comment about them.
Except I just did, but really? This comment is totally about your fabulous Miss E belly.

(Elizabeth, Emma, Ellie, Eva, Eden???)

Yay for 35.4 weeks! I'm glad you've made it this far and I'm so excited to hear all about Miss. E!

Elaine A. said...

It's so fun to share this journey with you! :) You continue to look fabulous and I certainly know how you feel about being anxious. We just have to hang in there a little longer... Miss E & Miss K will be here SO soon!

P.S. C-section for me on Oct. 1 so that's my new 'due date' as far as I'm concerned!

You do look lower. Baby "E" is accessing the situation and making her plan for her big entrance. Love your new cabinet in the background....
